More information: Many possibilities, more information is needed. If one taps on your median nerve in the wrist does your finger tingle. If one puts pressure on the proper digital nerve in the palm or finger can you reproduce the symptoms. If the problem was in a nerve root (C6) you would also get shooting pains to from the neck down to the finger. Time will tell. It will either or worse.
